In this extended episode we get to meet the owners of two fantastic business that regularly do battle over the Food & Drink Gift award at the Gift of the Year competition. Ross Bearman (Ross & Ross Gifts) and Sanjay Aggarwal (Spice Kitchen) have both had victories and defeats and today we learn more about their friendly rivalry, their relationship with the Giftware Association, their passion for charity and take a look behind the scenes of their unique 'food gift' business models.
